  1. Slow Youtube search

    Hi Folks,
    When in the YouTube page and searching in the YouTube search box there is a real lag to the text typing. If I do the same in explorer it is fine.
    Any ideas?

  2. Edge Keeps Dropping the Ball

    Edge continually drops my searches. I used to type Y and select YouTube. Simple. Cool. Now, I get the option for YouTube, and select it, but no luck. So I type Yo, and it drops, You, it drops. OK, YouTube. I put the cursor in the search box after I
    type the word, or after I select it from the list below the search box, and press enter. Still it drops. What's up? I have started using Chrome which is super slow, but at least it gets me there. I am using Youtube as an example. It's been happening with
    all searches lately.

    I ran the Microsoft troubleshooter. It found nothing. I ran Malwarebytes, AVG, and SuperAntispyware and had the last one make the recommended fixes. The problem seems to be getting worse. Then there's Bing which is approaching hopeless.

    In your power options, switch to performance, then click change power plan, then click the change advanced power plan, window pops up, look for your network adapter, change it there to performance and see if that speeds Edge up some.

    Occurs only on YouTube ? Approx how long is the lag, 1-2 sec ? How many open tabs ? Disable your Extensions to see if one may be effecting.

    You may try to repair/reset Edge.

    Scroll down to Edge and Click
    Advanced Options

    Many prefer Chrome or Firefox.

    Slow Youtube search

    Disable your extensions to see if any effect. Reset or Repair Edge as listed above.

    Also, are you running the latest edition of Win10 (16299.125) ?

  9. That was interesting.
    Resetting Edge gets the typing speed back but when I put my favourites bar back on is the point when the lag reappears.
    I'm going to delete each fav on the bar and see what happens...

  10. It was a fav bar item for my hometown newspaper that was the culprit.
